Do you have, like me, 20 or more browser tabs open at all times? Are you tired of some random site or Flash ad crashing your browser and causing you to lose your (say) Google Docs data in another tab? Using Fluid, you can create SSBs to run each of your favorite WebApps as a separate Cocoa desktop application. Fluid gives any WebApp a home on your Mac OS X desktop complete with Dock icon, standard menu bar, logical separation from your other web browsing activity, and many, many other goodies. Sounds fabulous!

Have you used Fluid? Thoughts?

  1. I hate that Fluid doesn’t allow me to log in as multiple users on different services.. That’s the only reason why I use Prism instead.. I like webkit so much better, and Fluid seems very promising.. But this is a main feature for me..

  2. the nightly builds of new safari (“webkit”) have this capability built-in.



  3. Isn’t this like Google’s new browser, Chrome? All the tabs have separate processes running them so one crashing doesn’t affect the others.

  4. I prefer using Google Chrome ;-)

  5. i used to use this for browsing playlists in muxtape.com…

    too bad that’s over. *tear*

  6. interesting software, but there are to many alternatives nowadays…

  7. Looks like Cover Flow in iTunes!

  8. I’ve been using Fluid for about 6 months now for Facebook and Gmail and I love it. Keeps those activities (which are always open) separate from my other web browsing (and safe from crashes and slow downs), and having the little app icons is strangely satisfying…seems to legitimize them or something. Probably a bad thing in the case of Facebook…

    ps. I like your new branding in the header. looks sharp!
